Xbox 360 will not be getting IPTV this year Microsoft has now issued a statement that says that IPTV functionality will not be included in the fall Xbox 360 firmware updated as expected.
The statement also implies that the service may not be launched in 2007 at all as promised by Bill Gates at the CS event a few months ago.

"Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) features will only be available from the Xbox 360 through a service provider who has deployed Xbox 360 with Microsoft Mediaroom (IPTV) services,"
read the statement.

"Xbox 360 with Microsoft Mediaroom (IPTV), will be available to service providers by the end of the year. Microsoft's IPTV service providers will ultimately determine the timing of Xbox 360 with Microsoft Mediaroom deployments."

So... who will be the providers for this? Will I have to have AT&T U-verse... that's not in my area anyway.

I can't imagine it matters what's in your area geographically, since IPTV is delivered via the internet...
